Who we are
We are a biomedical computing research laboratory at Oregon Health and Science University with affiliations to the Biomedical Engineering Department and the Computational Biology Program. Laboratory research themes include:
Molecular variation and human health - We develop computational methods that mine large biomedical datasets to undercover features in the genome or cellular microenvironment that impact human health. Active projects focus on detecting cancerous mutations in blood ("liquid biopsies") and computational methods for tumor immunotherapy, where the body's immune system is used to fight cancer.
Data-intensive Science - We develop computational tools and infrastructure that can efficiently process large scientific datasets and help investigators make sense of downstream results. We are team members of Galaxy, a Web-based system for data analysis in a Web browser that is used across the world. We are working to enhance Galaxy through visual analytics, machine learning, and cloud computing.
